Phyllis Diller

Could you tell me whether Phyllis Diller is Susan Lucci’s mother?
—Carl Wallace, Huntington, Tenn.

Despite persistent rumors linking them, Diller is not related to the All My Children actress. The feisty comedian, 93, is happy living out of the spotlight at her home in Brentwood, Calif. “After touring for 40 years, I put the wigs up on the shelf. I’ve even sold a few of them,” she says with a signature cackle. Beyond occasional trips out to dinner, traveling these days is “out of the question,” says the native of Lima, Ohio.
